Authorities arrested Parker A. Smith, 32 of Yosemite California, for a burglary Saturday after a homeowner on Chaffee County Road 120 told the sheriff’s office he was watching an unknown man inside his home on his security camera.

Sheriff John Spezze reported that at about 3:30 p.m. the sheriff’s office received a call from the homeowner who was out of town.

The man was subsequently arrested.

Smith was transported to the Chaffee County Detention Facility where he was charged with First Degree Burglary, Class 3 Felony;   Criminal Mischief, Class 3 Misdemeanor and Theft, class unknown to values of items still pending.
